Just curious..... Why the need to tell the jeweler you are a designer
I told her when she complimented my ring, which I made. I didn’t
need to tell her, and I guess it would have been a lot easier if I
didn’t. But I did.
and why the need for photos of the piece if you have no interest in wanting to copy it?
I didn’t need the pictures, I didn’t even ask for them, they were
Seems to me the Jeweler is trying to protect themselves and their sources. Isn't that what you would like a jeweler representing your work to do?
Maybe I wasn’t clear enough in my original post… I completely
understand the need to protect her artists. I really really really
get that. I would want someone to do the same for me? of course I
would. Why wouldn’t I?
I think if she would have said, “I don’t feel comfortable giving you
pictures of another jeweler’s work because you are a designer, and
no disrespect to you, but I feel the need to protect the designs of
my designers” I would have been fine with that because it would have
been out in the open. It was the manner in which it was handled that
irked me at the time. I think she was trying to be polite and non-
confrontational, she did what she felt was best at the time and I
overreacted a bit.
After letting a few days pass and reading all your great posts, I’m
over it. I gave my husband the info on the jewelry and we’ll see if
it shows up all wrapped up nice with a bow.
